The group pointed out that the Independent Review Committee (IRC) is looking into donations made by Ferrexpo to the Blooming Land Charity and said it can report that it has made progress in receiving explanations regarding the differences contained on the bank statements.

Ferrexpo added that the IRC has also received third-party evidence - including governmental confirmations - to explain some of the possible discrepancies in the application of funds by Blooming Land as per its announcement of 19 March 2019. 

It said the IRC is undertaking further work to corroborate the above explanations and evidence.

The group added; “At the current time, the Board cannot guarantee that the review will be complete by the publication of its full-year results, or will complete favourably.”
